GAME ON! COUNTRY THUNDER WISCONSIN RETURNS JULY 15 TO 18, 2021
GAME ON! COUNTRY THUNDER WISCONSIN RETURNS JULY 15 TO 18, 2021 SUPERSTARS BLAKE SHELTON, KANE BROWN, MORGAN WALLEN & DUSTIN LYNCH CONFIRMED AS HEADLINERS!
One of the biggest names in music history will be joined by the hottest new act in country, a pair of Nashville’s finest hitmakers, the who’s who of red-hot up-and-comers, as well as veteran artists who have stood the test of time.
The all-star lineup will only add to the legacy of one of North America’s finest music festivals.
“The fans in Wisconsin and Illinois are some of the best in the world,” says Country Thunder Music Festivals CEO, Troy Vollhoffer. “They have been incredibly loyal, and we have put together the kind of lineup they have come to expect.
“Having Blake Shelton in Twin Lakes to close out the festival is going to make for a very special weekend.”
Indeed, there are very few artists in music (and television) history who have captured the hearts and minds of fans the way Shelton has.
Since 2001 he has been an unstoppable force in not only the country music, but also television and pop culture, landscapes.
Just a few career highlights on a list too long to compile: 11 best-selling albums, a staggering 28 No. 1 singles, numerous sold-out tours, every industry music award and honor imaginable (including the 2020 ACM Single Of The Year for God’s Country), and
19 seasons as a coach, and seven-time champion, for the Emmy Award-winning television show, The Voice.
At his core, however, Shelton a live artist who connects with fans on a concert stage the way very few can. It will make for a perfect night at the Shadow Hill Ranch when he launches into any one of those 28 No.1s – count on it.
Wallen may one day ascend to such heights – he has certainly come along way since appearing on The Voice during the show’s sixth season.
The Tennessee native has lived up to the promise of 2019 and 2020 and blasted straight to the top of the country music charts with Dangerous: The Double Album.
The undisputed hottest new act of the genre began his climb to the top of the country music mountain with Whiskey Glasses and Chasin You, before belting it out of the park with More Than My Hometown, and 7 Summers in 2020.
Prior to the release of his new album, Wallen had a record-breaking run on the Apple Music Pre-Add chart at the end of 2020. It turned out to be a good omen as Dangerous: The Double Album exploded out of the box upon release. Fans at Country Thunder Wisconsin will catch country’s next mega-star in mid-flight.
Kane Brown was already an emerging superstar prior to lockdown. He only added fuel to that fire in the past year with six more top-5 singles, including three No, 1s.
In addition to monster hits such as Heaven, Lose It and Good As You, Brown enjoyed some crossover success on last year’s Mixtape Vol. 1 which featured hit collaborations with Marshmello, Nelly, and Swae Lee and Khalid.
Fans are already going crazy for the new Chris Young collaboration, Famous Friends, from the forthcoming Raised On Country album – a sure-fire No. 1 by the time Country Thunder Wisconsin rolls around!
Dustin Lynch will kick the festival off in style as the Thursday evening headliner.
With over two billion total career streams, Lynch continues to affirm his place as one of country music’s biggest stars. With seven #1 hits, four Top-5 albums and tours with the genre’s biggest names (Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Brad Paisley), the Grand Ole Opry member will set the tone for what promises to be one amazing weekend!
Russell Dickerson, Chris Lane, HARDY, Clay Walker, Tanya Tucker, Chicks With Hits (featuring Terri Clark, Pam Tillis and Suzie Bogguss), Neal McCoy, Parker McCollum, Kameron Marlowe, Parmalee, Sykamore, Jenny Tolman, Seaforth, Meghan Patrick, Nolan Sotillo, Ashland Craft and more join this stellar lineup.
